What is the City’s first/youthful offender treatment?

Any person under the age of 21 at the time the offense is committed, may request in writing at or before the time of trial, the City’s first/youthful offender treatment of his
sentence.

The conditions are as follows:

  • The defendant has no prior record
  • The defendant is willing to submit and comply with all conditions imposed by the court
  • The defendant has never been sentenced under the City’s first/youthful offender ordinance

Failure of the defendant to comply with conditions will result in the imposition of the original sentence. Compliance with all conditions, however, will result in dismissal of all charges against the defendant. First/youthful offender treatment will not be granted for any offense requiring mandatory suspension of driver’s license pursuant to state law.
